Captain America, Harry Potter and other summer movie stars helped RealD's second quarter profits exceed analyst expectations on Wednesday.
Revenues at the 3D company jumped 35 percent to $88 million from the same quarter last year.
However, RealD's revenue fell just short of Wall Street's prognostications.
The 3D company also saw its net income climb to $18.9 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, up from a net loss of $5.1 million, or $0.12 per share in the year ago period.
Analysts had predicted profits of 22 cents a share and revenue of $94.4 million, according to Thomson Reuters.
Revenue from licensing the company's 3D systems jumped 119 percent to $52 million from $23.8 million in the year ago period.
Despite the relatively robust fiscal picture, shares of the company dropped more than 13 percent to $9.78 in after-hours trading.
RealD also announced that Samsung has decided not to move forward with a previous initiative to manufacture 3D panels with the company's license. RealD said it was pursuing other partners.
